Freedom to Love

Only Christians know true freedom. Jesus Christ fulfilled the Law through his sacrificial death, setting believers free from the law of sin and death.

“If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”

John 8:36, NLT

The apostle Paul explains Christian freedom in this way:

For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.

Galatians 5:13, NLT

He further addresses the purpose of the limits to our freedom.

“You say, ‘I am allowed to do anything’ – but not everything is good for you. You say, ‘I am allowed to do anything’ – but not everything is beneficial. Don’t be concerned for your own good but for the good of others.”

1 Corinthians 10:23–24, NLT

Love and unity in the body of Christ are more important than anyone’s personal convictions or Christian liberty.

“So let’s stop condemning each other. Decide instead to live in such a way that you will not cause another believer to stumble and fall.”

Romans 14:13, NLT

Let our freedom to love God and others be our all-encompassing motive.
